    1. Well, not in one day Randy, but, I will chop down the panicums...We must make hay while the sun shines. I still think February could shock us with a bit of winter! gail

  2. You have crocus blooming already. Wow. I have a few crocus greens up but not blooming. We have had 2 days of sunshine. Yipeeee. The sunshine has encouraged me to get out and do a little clean up. I hope you get your clean up all done...in one day?? Naw, you surely are just getting started.??

    1. Lisa, I will just start...not sure where the cleaning up in one day rumor started! The grasses will come down, the ex-asters need to be trimmed, then there are the leaves that mulched the garden all winter, then there are the paths~they need to more pine straw. The list is long in a garden. gail

  13. Snapped a photo of my first crocus bloom yesterday. Daffodils are blooming, too, and the hellebore isn't far behind. But I fear we'll have an icy surprise in February or March. I have SO MUCH cleaning up to do - can't imagine when I'll get it done.

  14. Spring is on its way! I have been patient with winter so far, but now, I just want it to be spring. I'll have to enjoy you folks' in warmer zones progress for awhile first.

  15. I hope you had a wonderful day outside yesterday, Gail! It feels like spring here today, too, though I doubt my crocuses are ready to emerge just yet.

  16. So early! When would be the normal time to see crocus in you area?
